Georgia Farm Bureau

Georgia Farm Bureau is celebrating its 85th anniversary this year. The organization began when a group of farmers from seven counties in Northwest Georgia met at the Bartow County courthouse on June 17, 1937.

Farmers attended the meeting organized by Robert M. Stiles, a Bartow County farmer, because they needed a farmer-led organization to represent them. A second meeting, attended by 50 farmers from 25 counties, was held in Atlanta on July 31, 1937. During this meeting, the farmers formed the United Georgia Farmers and elected Stiles president of the organization.
